Hydraulic fracturing is a controversial technique in which rock is fractured through pressurised fluid. At enormous pressure the fluid (often a mixture of chemicals) is injected into the earth to create an extensive system of cracks. Allowing gas and petroleum to flow more freely. More than 100 licenses have been awarded by the government to firms in the uk.
In response to this i have created a series of newsprints that explore and showcase the harsh aftermath from fracking. Whether it be environmental damage or financial uncertainty. Other outcomes include a heavily typographic visual treatment, tote bags and other material desired to start up a dialogue for a change.
There’s a cleaner path, renewable energy.
